Summer reading programs are an important part of library programming because evidence shows that children typically regress academically over the long summer holiday. And, youth who practice their reading skills over the summer break return to school better equipped to continue with their studies. Adult participation is key because research shows that the best way to get your children to read is to let them see you reading.
This program is presented by the Alameda County Library, with support from the Alameda County Library Foundation. Other sponsors include Chabot Space & Science Center, Oakland A’s, Target, The Lawrence Hall of Science, LEGOLAND and Togo’s.
